Juan Martinez: Stick by Your Faith; God is Always With You

Juan Martinez of Uvalde, TX, is a firefighter and EMT who says his wife, Judy, is the strongest person he knows. But this dynamic duo didn’t feel brave or strong when their 2-year-old son, Jaxson, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive cancer.

“We were terrified,” Juan said. “The worst thoughts go through your mind.” But then, as parents do, the couple pushed back their fears and got to work on behalf of their son.
